For Blue Note by Dan Tobacco, mellow, golden Virginias, that have a naturally high sweetness, are mixed with a mellow Black Cavendish. A fresh flavor of exotic fruits and a touch of Bourbon Vanilla is added to make this an extraordinarily mellow blend.
This aromatic is an ode to subtlety, beginners who prefer really sweet blends will have a hard time in order to appreciate the true character from this blend, it has a very complex and limited palette of flavours that require certain expertise and di... Read Moresposition to get. It is very "jazzy".
I read somewhere that "Blue note" was made as a tribute to the famous jazz club in New York, the person said that it was mainly a sensuous re-enactment from the place, the general jazzy atmosphere, the odour and sensation from the leather furniture, the warmness and the coolness altogether, the blue note... I think i can imagine all this while i smoked this blend, it does have all those nuances and its intriguing.
It all starts as a timid note flat and constant of virginia and as it gains intensity the musicality from this smoke tunes in. An aroma of leather and soft bourbon takes in, the band is now developing the jam, tobacco dominates above the aromatic and it just varies the intensity from virginia, moderated by the bass lines from the cavendish. At times a little vanilla note jumps in very vaguely adorning the trumpet lines from the domminating virginia, sips from bourbon as you sit and contemplate. The band is in full digression till the mid of the pipe, jamming hard, drums kick in, wildness in the air. Intensity is moderate.
The last quarter is where there is more aromatic approach, a lot more into smoothness, clarinet submerges you into volutes of blue smoke and the atmosphere in your palate receives all the most intensity from vanilla and bourbon, a little citric which remits to general coolness, a little sweetness wall of flavour and virginia strength. You get in, youre seduced by the rhythm, it is endulging and appetizing, it maintains this cadence until it finishes.
Very interesting smoke. Truly complex and mysterious. The flavour is certainly undetermined even though you can detect the components, but the trick is to find the "atmosphere" it creates, the whole blend flavour which sums up the "blue note". Recommended. Read Less

Blue Note delivers as described as far as the tin and room note go, but it was lacking flavor. I will keep a bit of Blue Note around when I feel like smoking a different aro or for social situations, but it won’t go into rotation

Okay so this is my first time smoking blue note. I am new to smoking pipe. I tried to get a ... Read Moretin of Blue Note but it seems that everywhere on the internet right now is out of stock.
I left a hefty pinch out to dry for about 20 mins.
Immediately upon opening the bag I was met with a very distinct smell that i couldn't quite put my finger on. I noticed that the tobacco was a little chunky. There was super fine powdery bits but the majority of the blend had larger "chunks" or "pieces" of tobacco. I apologize if my terminology is not yet developed. I packed my peterson pipe using the method that tamps down in 3 layers.
The flavor is lovely. In the beginning I had a hard time getting smoke from this tobacco. My peterson was glowing red but there was little smoke. I am sure it was a novice error and my fault. At first I thought it was my pipe being cracked but i looked it over and no cracks. I then loosened the tobacco and got plenty of smoke. It seemed to burn fairly loose.
I enjoyed this tobacco and will most definitely buy it again. Read Less

This blend is sure to please! From the first draw to the last you will enjoy this mild flavor filled blend. This is great for the beginner as well as the more experienced smoker. The room note is very pleasing I have been told.
